When the doctor completes a posterior resin filling D2391, but wants to seal any additional grooves connected to the cavity surface, can we also use code D1352?
Or, can we use code D1352 if the doctor fills a groove not in connection with the cavity getting filled with the D2391?
Yes, you may use D1352. However, you must meet coding guidelines on this code. Meaning you must be able to prove the patient is moderated to high risk caries patient and needs the sealant placed to reduce the risk of further caries.
